Gold Eclipse 8 Interconnect
Solid Silver Conductors | 4x 32 Strands, 18 AWG Total | Quad DNA Geometry | Composilex 3 Insulation
The Wireworld Gold Eclipse 8 interconnect features Ohno Continuous Cast Silver conductors, Composite Dialectric Technology, Silver Tube connectors, and the DNA Helix geometry. The Gold Eclipse 8 is sonically closer the Platinum Eclipse than any other Wireworld cable.
Series 8 Upgrades
Wireworld was founded with the unique mission of perfecting audio cables through objective listening tests. These scientific tests ensure that each new generation of cables we produce lets you hear more of the original sound than previous cables. After five years of development beyond our highly acclaimed Series 7, we have released our Series 8 cables, the next great step toward musical perfection.
For Series 8, the DNA Helix designs have been upgraded by increasing the number of strand groups, which strengthens the electromagnetic field that moves the signal through the cable. Also, our third generation composite insulation, Composilex 3, combines low loss with the lowest triboelectric noise ever for amazing purity and focus. In addition to those improvements, many of the new speaker cables and some interconnects also benefit from increased wire gauge. The combination of these technical improvements provides surprising upgrades in recreating the power and delicacy of live music.
Gold Eclipse 8 Metallurgy
The Gold Eclipse 8 series interconnect cables are comprised of Ohno Continuous Cast Silver. 99.99997% (6N) pure.
Silver Tube Connectors
As impressive as gold plated connectors may look, they are not a reliable indicator of quality in cables. Most gold-plated plugs are made of brass, which is then plated with nickel and a thin layer of gold. Brass and nickel are very poor conductors that introduce significant signal loss at the points of contact. The Gold Eclipse 6 utilizes tubular silver-clad OFC contacts and a silicone rubber tension band, which produce the lowest contact resistance available, these state-of-the-art connectors make dramatic improvements in sound and image quality.
Composilex 3 Insulation
Insulation materials are considered very important in cable design and designers usually select whatever standard materials they find to work the best. The problem with that approach is that none of those standard materials provide both low loss and low triboelectric noise. To overcome that limitation, we developed our own composite insulation materials. Now in their third generation, Composilex 3 insulation materials are uniquely blended to minimize both noise and loss, enabling us to hear more musical detail and three-dimensionality than ever before.
Composilex 3 insulation has made great improvements in the performance of Wireworld Series 8 cables. It is totally unique to our brand and the incredibly quiet background, tonal purity and expansive soundstaging it provides are a revelation in sonic realism. It works by reducing triboelectric noise, which is caused by static charge/discharge effects generated where conductors touch insulation. The noise is induced by movement, vibration and signal energy. Engineered for the lowest triboelectric noise of any low loss insulation material, including DuPont Teflon, Composilex 3 provides a major advance in preserving tonality, spatiality and dynamic contrast.
DNA Helix Geometry
WireWorld’s DNA™ cables have optimally engineered, closely-spaced conductors, which provide dramatic improvements in the preservation of harmonic structure, three-dimensionality and dynamics.
